    Is there any option to get screws that are lighter than Cinestar original ones?

    Titanium would be lighter but you might not like the cost.

    All of them? Have you weighed what you have? I would wager that the total weight of screws in a Cinestar 8 is...oh...let’s say 500-600 grams (and that’s being generous). My cursory Google searches seem to indicate that Titanium is generally about 40% lighter than Stainless Steel. So you might gain 200 grams. And it’ll cost you a pretty penny. Seems there might be more efficient ways to gain back 200 grams.

    John, are 30mm long enough? I don't se bigger ones.

    Do you have a chance to weight them?

    Well, 200g would be nice to save if the price is not too high.

    No, the Cinestar uses 35 and 40mm for the long connections. I wasn't sure if this vendor has the ones we use or not. I was just saying that some vendors do seem to have some Titanium bolts at reasonable prices, so there is a possibility to search and find the ones we need at a reasonable price.
